Check the drain off the coil inside the fridge you can usually find it by looking at the back of the fridge and locating the hose running down to a tray either on top of the compressor or its own receptacle it will probably be blocked,air pressure back up this line usually removes the offending object and allows it to drain again

SOUNDS LIKE A BLOCKED DRAIN
Drain is probably located at top of refrigerated compartment. If you can't see it you may have to remove the the thermostat and/or light assembly at top of frige. Once located a wire can be used to unblock drain. I had same problem and tried to use a wire coat hanger but it wasn't flexable enough. I resorted to a piece of No. 12 copper electrical wire. It negotiated any bends in the drain and was strong enough to clear the blockage.

Depends if there is plastic tubing running inside fridge compartment. Shut off water to fridge. If that stops it you will have to look inside to see if there is visible plastic water tubing or if you can get to it from inside the fridge. Maybe the water line has a defect or got pinched and somehow split. Then turn on water, find leak and splice in a replacement section.

Water leaking into the refrigerator


Hi, You have a drain plugged in the frezer. Your model # doesn't come up but what you need to do is remove the rear anel in the freezer and clear the ice. If the floor of the freezer has two screws holding it, remove it as well.
Please check the model# again and I can assist you further. There is an after market deat transfer strip you might need to add to prevent this from reaccuring.

Thanks
Vic

It appears the defrost drain inside freezer is blocked or the drain tube leading to pan near compressor is clogged I would unplug refrigerator and remove the back panel in freezer to examine the drain and get back with me to let me know what you find, also get model number for your refrigerator so I can help you better. Sea Breeze Look at following areas for the model number
  • Beneath Or Inside Food Compartment On Cabinet Frame
  • On Plate Lower Front Or Rear Of Cabinet
  • Beside Compressor Door On Right End
  • Near Rear Of Cabinet
  • Inside Liner At Top

Water laying underneath the fruit & vegetable storage drawers


Hi Matt, Hi Dar(lene)?

Super easy fix. Your defrost drain is blocked by what we in the biz affectionately refer to as "Bio-Gookus", so every time the fridge goes into defrost, the newly melted water has no place to go other than the bottom of your fridge. Gravity is what gravity is, ya know?

My bet is that it's clogged up at the drain funnel located in the refrigerator/beer compartment. If I'm remembering right, it should be just to the left of the thermostat/control panel in the back. You should see a plastic cover there, remove it. See the "Bio-Gookus? Kinda gross, huh? All of that has to be cleaned out. Not only in the funnel but the tubing behind it as well.

After cleaning it (and putting the pieces back) your fridge will be happy again.

Hope this helps!

open the freezer compartment loo for ice build up on floor of frezer especally towards rear behind back panel. sounds like you have a clogged/frozen defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials)
